Letter from April 4th, 2011

Hey friends

This will be short, but cool.

Conference Mania!

Yesterday concluded the thing that gives missionaries the closest sensation to a rock concert (a.k.a. General Conference. I am happy to report that we had 4 investigators in attendance, as well as several less-actives). As for talks I liked, I really liked Elder Oaks, both the talks from President Uchtdorf, President Monson`s Priesthood session talk (nice and direct), Elder Scott`s talk about how to respect spouses, Elder Bednar`s about revelation, and several others.


Yay for progress! So this week we had some cool things. First off, we reset a baptismal date with Brandon (a 14 year old) who had stopped progressing but then had a complete change after completing his commitment to read the BOM. Once again, the BOM was the key to his change. His baptismal date will be the 24th of April. Also cool is we got a reference (supposedly from the U.S. of A.) of a lady who had lost a son 6 months ago. Her name is Liliana and she has a 14-year-old daughter named Valentina. They were living in the states and Valentina is basically Gringa. She speaks better English than spanish. Even better, they are from the Los Angeles, California area (if I remember correctly Lindora--but my memory of the LA area has faded while I have been in Chile). Anyway, they are really cool too. There is one more awesome thing that I will have to share next week due to time.

Random notes

There is a really cool completo place in our sector that has Jumbo completos that are a little over a foot long. Also, we found a random monkey zoo in the corner of our sector that will deserve further investigation. As for today, we will be having an asado with lots of meat and chorizo (a type of sausage) with bread. Yep, that is about all for today.
